With just over a month to go until We The Fest 2018 descends on Indonesia’s bustling capital, festival organisers Ismaya Live have decided to throw even more major acts into the mix as the countdown to day one begins. First up is Grammy-award winning singer, songwriter, and producer Miguel. Having spent a handful of years behind the scenes honing his craft before his breakthrough LP Kaleidoscope in 2012, Miguel now sits at the very top of the pop/R&B crossover genre.
Adding some support are Malaysian rock four-piece Midnight Fusic and sibling pop group The Sam Willows, who are both set to bring their distant sound to downtown Jakarta. SZA, one of the hottest alt-R&B singers to come out of the States in recent years, is also added to the WTF billing. She joins Aussie talent and future classic mainstay, Basenji, and one of the most exciting names new to the EDM scene, Party Favor.
Flying the flag for South Korea is pop-sensation, Eric Nam. Named GQ Korea’s 2016 ‘Man Of The Year’, and boasting Timberland and Gallant cosigns, this one of a kind act will be lighting up the WTF stage in July. He joins Jakarta’s very own Dipha Barus, who has turned heads with his electrifying DJ sets and up-beat future-bass productions. Another homegrown talent set to grace the stage is Andien, whose smooth and soulful voice has struck a chord with fans in Indonesia and further afield, catch her laid-back and jazzy set at this year’s event along with another 10 local acts set to perform.
Vince Staples caps off the international headliners and adds further weight to WTF’s already stellar lineup. With a background in hip-hop, Staples has carved a career out of music that is both socially aware and at times lyrically comical. His latest LP, Big Fish Theory, touches on dance and electronic influences and is sure to go down a treat with the WTF crowd. With a star-studded lineup and with tickets selling fast, We The Fest 2018 is now within touching distance. To avoid disappointment buy tickets here.
